Hostelworld has launched a new in-app experience called Hostel Noticeboard.
The new feature can be found in the My Trips section of the Hostelworld app and is designed to show events hosted in hostels.
Users can browse through events being held at hostels, pick which ones they’d like to attend and download them to their calendar.
It includes activities from walking tours, cooking lessons and beer Olympics to Happy Hours, barbecues and movie nights.
Breffni Horgan, head of product at Hostelworld, the world’s largest hostel accommodation platform, said: “We know our customers are looking for adventure and to meet new and open-minded people whilst travelling.
“Hostels are different to any other accommodation type in that they are designed to bring people together for shared experiences. Hostel Noticeboard further encourages this, by bringing to the surface the different types of social events happening in hostels 24/7 around the world, and all in one place on the app.”
Initially launching for 150 hostels in English markets, Hostelworld plans to roll the technology out hostel-wide in the near future.
The app is free to download from the App Store and Google play.
